Millennials - those born after 1981 - officially outspent Boomers last year, according to a report from Boston-based management consulting company Bain & Company, and they’re on track to represent 80 percent of luxury purchases by 2030, including travel.

  • Hilton, like its competition, has been busy, augmenting its brand portfolio with products designed with the millennial traveler in mind;
  • Even the business travel industry has reacted to a new generation of travelers less interested in stuffy, formal experiences.
